A MOTHER'S JEWEL:

A MOTHER'S JEWEL:
(Iwrote this some years ago 
before my daughter stopped all contact)
 
You are the pearl within the oyster,
The stars that shine by night.
You have shared with me some dark days,
You have helped me through my plight.
 
To me you're a jewel that's priceless.
One with a heart of gold.
You have warmed the very soul of me,
When my feelings were so cold.
 
Thank you my dear daughter.
You're a treasure beyond compare.
Should you need me anytime,
It goes without saying I'll be there.
 
My burden you have lightened.
You are a special kind of girl,
As I have already mentioned,
You're my jewel, you're my pearl.

  2. I too have a daughter (just 5 and half years old yet) and she is indeed my treasure. Daughters are special.

  3. A lovely picture and a beautiful poem. I have no daughters but do have precious daughters-in-law and granddaughters. They are very precious to me.
